UPDATE: A little boy named Lakota John Bell is officially Sioux City's New Year's baby.
He was born St. Luke's around nine o'clock last night to proud parents Marvin Bell and Jessica Anderson.
Lakota weighed 7 pounds, five ounces and is 20 inches long.
However, he wasn't the first Siouxland baby born yesterday. Proud parents Brent and Ashley Langel welcomed their little boy, Tate, just after four yesterday afternoon at the Floyd Valley hospital in Le Mars.
We'll bring you more from baby Bell later today, after he and parents get some rest.
Leopoldo Guevara Jr. isn't Sioux City's new year's baby, but he just might be runner up.
When mom went into labor on December 30th, she stayed in labor for nearly 24 hours.
And dad thought, "Perfect! Our little new year's baby!"
Not the case, though. Leopoldo was born on New Year's Eve.
Guevara says, "Those things don't happen when you want it, haha, but we're happy anyway."
And since New Year's Eve? The labor and delivery department at St. Luke's in Sioux City has been a ghost town. With the exception of a few other close calls, nurses there, say it's unlike anything they've ever seen.
Holley Duerksen a Registered Nurse at St. Luke's, says, "I've been here almost 6 years and it's unusual very unusual, everybody wants their baby to be the new year's baby and get that spotlight, and its very unusual we haven't had anybody come in, in labor or even thinking they were in labor today."
So, in the meantime, Duerksen is tending to all her other little bundles of joy, who are, needless to say, just as precious as the first of the year.
